If you own part of an imaging center, you may be exposed to malpractice insurance claims made against your physician liability insurance policy. It is important to provide a separate limit of insurance to cover your imaging center, providing a separate malpractice insurance policy to cover each risk element of your practice . Inadvertently many physicians assume that their medical malpractice insurance policies will cover this added exposure. Imaging centers need the protection of a strong and reputable medical malpractice insurance policy. The insurance company should also have a strong risk management program, including site visits and phone consultations designed to take measures to eliminate possible problems before they can result in claims. It is vital to make sure the malpractice insurance policy covers all of the exposures for the imaging center. Most MRI or x-ray clinics are unsure of what to look for when acquiring medical malpractice insurance. Malpractice insurance needs to cover the particular services offered by the imaging center - including MRI and X-ray exposure, as well as their associated physicians.
